Ah yes, AI!  Of course.  I created a whole course on Change Management using the AI principles.  I'll review the course material for some ideas.  I like the examples you provided, though.  Thanks for the quick feedback.  So glad I joined this community.

All great information, Amy.  I reading through some of the articles now and starting to get some ideas. 

Specific to this particular part of the curriculum, we are looking at the topic of managing a ever evolving culture in a fast paced environment and what role leadership plays in defining and sustaining the culture.

Perhaps my topics below can be turned into questions?  But definitely would like to hear your thoughts. I'll also post on the community board.

Culture Management

  • How do we define our culture and the role that leadership plays
    • What is the leader’s responsibility toward managing culture

  • How to seed good culture – how to live it day-to-day

  • How to manage culture and integrate effectively into the individual/team/ department/company levels 

  • Communication management:  How to create a culture of communication; how to deliver consistent messages; good, honest communication (constructive); communicating and giving feedback in difficult situations

  • How to foster agility - to how to be nimble and open to change; not being closed minded

Thank you Amy.  I am in the process of developing a Leadership Training curriculum and am considering using the World Café process as part of an activity centered around 'defining our culture and the role that leadership plays in the process.'  I am open to any types of questions that would be good to initiate the table conversations.

Hi Amy! Thank you for the welcome, it is much appreciated.  In response to your question, what little I know is that the World Café approach was "renamed" for use in Tribal settings as the "RezCafe".  Rez being the name most of us tribal people refer to as our reservation settings.  I'm not sure beyond that how deeply if any the key concepts were adapted, my assumption is really only in the name.  What I do know is that one of our grantees that we work with within my current employment has used the RezCafe model recently in a high school setting seeking to address suicide prevention. 

We are interested in this approach for that same target issue in assisting our tribal communities in addressing suicide prevention efforts, challenges, solutions and approaches by an attempt to host a summit utilizing the World Café format.  Any suggestions or tips would be helpful.

Hi Amy

I was a participant in a World Café at my workplace and also studies the process as part of a Masters in Business Psychology. I would like to learn and hear stories about the World Café from the community.

Many thanks
